Finite element tearing and interconnecting for the electromagnetic vector wave equation in two dimensions
Thesis (MScEng (Electrical and Electronic Engineering))--University of Stellenbosch, 2007.
The finite element tearing and interconnect(FETI) domain decomposition(DD) method is investigated in terms of the 2D transverse electric(TEz) finite element method(FEM). The FETI is for the first time rigorously derived using the weighted residual framework from which important insights are gained. The FETI is used in a novel way to implement a total-/scattered field decomposition and is shown to give excellent results. The FETI is newly formulated for the time domain(FETI-TD), its feasibility is tested and it is further formulated and tested for implementation on a distributed computer architecture.
